We’re getting our first look at the upcoming Hairspray Live!, coming to NBC later this year.

One of the stars of the show is our good friend Jennifer Hudson, who has been tapped to play the role of record store owner Motormouth Maybelle.

Others starring in the live performance out of Los Angeles will be Harvey Fierstein playing the role of Edna Turnblad, newcomer Maddie Baillios as Tracy Turnblad, Ariana Grande as Penny Pingleton, Kristin Chenoweth as Welma Von Tussle, Derek Hough as Corny Collins, and Martin Short as Wilbur Turnblad just to name a few.   Some of those also appearing in guest roles are Sean Hayes, Andrea Martin and Rosie O’Donnell.

NBC’s Hairspray Live! will air live on Wednesday, December 7 at 8pm.
